Abstract:

A study with the aim of demonstrating the fungicide power of OLEOZON, 
in the superficial mycosis was performed.  The diagnosis was made 
according to clinical and mycological evaluation.  200 out-patients 
were divided in 2 groups: experimental, treated topically with 
OLEOZON, and control, treated with tolnaftate solution or salicylic 
solution of gentian violet.  The mycological evaluation, were 
negative in 69% of the patients treated with OLEOZON and in 7% of the 
control group.


Conclusions:

Oleozon demonstrated a great effectiveness in the healing of patients 
suffering onicomycosis, having a high therapeutical superiority in 
comparison with conventional treatments.  The healing time, in 
patients treated with Oleozon, was lesser than that obtained with 
conventional treatments.  These patients suffered no adverse 
reactions.
